Default 686 Euro Comp & 686 Euro Target???

I know of the 686 Carry Comp, and I know of the 686 Euro Hunter. But I never knew of the 686 Euro Comp.
It is being advertised as a Performance Center 686, but I cant find any information verifying that. Does anyone have any information on them except the 686 Action Revolver with the match grade 6" barrel and the Performance Center compensator that the SCSW talks about. Thanks in advance.

Also this Euro Target, apparently 1 of 500. I can't find anything about it in the SCSW either.

Probably two export-only pre-lock guns, of which there seem to be a few - there have been some cool Europe-only 617s posted here, as well as the CS-3 which seemed to be intended for export. If you are able, contacting the factory with the serial numbers might reveal more information.

Also here is a 627 being advertised as a 5 inch, I think it was for export only.

This Target Champion 627-0 is being advertised as a 5 1/2" barrel. Looks like a 6" to me.

Gunar, those are all pretty cool models. I know it's easier said than done but any of those you could scarf up would probably bring a pretty penny back home if you ever decide to move back. The ported 686 looked alot like my 629-4 PowerPort Classic. It's not a PC gun though. I can say that it's one of my favorite shooters.

That five inch 627 is likely a 627-2. Target Champion is something I have seen on exported guns, not so much in US. The five inch is extremely hard to come by here in US. If you can have only one, that would be my choice. I looked for 15 years before I found one I could buy. I only saw two before I bought one. One was sold before I saw the ad and the other one, I ran out of money!

I like the 627-0, too, as it has the five and a half inch barrel that you indicated and checkered top strap. The 5.5 inch guns were the last of the guns to receive top strap checkering i believe.

There are four of the 5 inchers and three of the 5 1/2 inchers for sale right now on their website for a little over a thousand bucks each.

The 5.5" 627-0 pictured above was sold here in small numbers and is now something of a cult gun. The 5" above it was also, but in very limited numbers as Nightowl mentioned.

Don't know what your gun buying budget is currently, but you could easily get your money back for all of them and then some here.

When I first got here, there was a model 19P for sale but it sold soon after I noticed it. I am also on the look out for the export only Performance Center model 617. They have Pythons for a little over a thousand bucks, Diamondbacks for around $800, SAA, a Triple Lock for around $1500 and alot more. Most of the guns here are in really good condition. Nobody is allowed to carry them and that means the ones for sale usually have less wear than the same gun in America. Plus they are usually shot much less too. I wonder if there are any Registered Magnums floating around here?
Other than my 27-8 because that really doesn't count.
The permit I have here limits me to only 6 handguns... (I know) I have 5, I have room for one more. My wife will have to apply for her permit, so I can sell her my beater model 28-2 to make more room

Here is a 617 for sale that I think might be a Performance Center European export.

Or maybe this one is a PC 617 too?

They love their Nill grips on your side of the pond! That's some serious custom work.

They also have a nice 4 inch model 18.

A nice 4 inch model 48 with the 22 long rifle and magnum cylinders.

A nice 4 inch model 53.

And for the Kit Gun lovers they have a model 34-1.
